What we have here is a Hunzinger platform rocker that appears to be in pristine condition. It is a great piece from which to observe some of the finer details of Hunzingerness that can be found on many of his pieces. One thing caught my eye though. There is some sort of brace in the arm of the chair which I have not seen in any of his other chairs. It appears to be a wooden brace with a metal rod inside the brace. Could it have been added later to provide additional support to an old and "rickety" chair?
